Hobart man charged with shooting at police

A Tasmanian man who allegedly fired at police during a 14-hour stand-off in suburban Hobart has been charged with aggravated assault and numerous other offences.

The 47-year-old barricaded himself inside his Maple Avenue home in Moonah on Sunday evening before eventually surrendering on Monday morning, police say.

He's been charged with three counts of aggravated assault, possessing a firearm without a licence, recklessly discharging a firearm and creating a common nuisance, among other offences.

The Moonah man is due to appear in the Hobart Magistrates Court on Wednesday afternoon.
